What We Do
Research confirms that a musical education improves academic success- it literally changes the brain, by enhancing cognitive development. And we know that students who learn music show persistence, motivation, concentration and have the ability to work successfully alone and as a part of a group.
Bravo Waukegan actively supports students of Waukegan public schools by partnering with the fine arts administration to fund opportunities to grow through music. Bravo provides resources for supervised, creative programs that take place in-school, after-school and during the summer.
Students Sponsored in
Bravo’s unique programs support music students in primary, middle and high school.
For example, Bravo underwrites music lessons, supplies loaned instruments,
and funds programs and after-school clubs.
Bravo’s commitment has directly
impacted so many hard-working
and hopeful families who are
dreaming big and looking for ways
to realize them.
